Welcome to the second episode of 'Look!'.
This glorious Sunday, I have gathered a few shops which have not received any sales yet. It is puzzling as they have beautiful items which are just begging to be owned and loved!
Show some love to the eight shops below and be their first Etsy customer! :)
I have been wanting to feature Etsy shops which have had no sales yet for a really long time. I was sure that there must be plenty around, with beautiful inventory just waiting to be bought and loved!
However, during the few days of researching for this entry, I realised these undiscovered gems were harder to find than I thought. Shops like those featured above are really few and far between.
While flipping through the many pages of shops which have yet to have a sale, it became apparent that most of them had zero sales for glaring reasons.
As a buyer on Etsy, I honestly feel that most of the shops I've seen, commit at least one of the common turn-offs below.
A. People buy handmade because it is precisely that, HANDMADE. We like to know the real person who has knitted/painted/sculpted the item, so do fill out that empty seller's profile!
B. Having a blank avatar just shows how little effort you've put into the shop.
C. Seriously, I don't want to buy something I'm supposed to wear on my head, that you've left on the muddy ground to photograph.
D. Unless it's a lone word, like 'SALE!' or 'NOTE!', reading an entire item description in CAPS is plain uncomfortable and would get any potential buyers running out of your shop fast.
I wish all of you that very exciting first sale quick! :)
